lifestyleAnna KellerComment

on Sunday I had a wonderful, sun-soaked day that was only made better by my first ever gimlet at the Daily Planet.  such a perfectly refreshing summer beverage!

  • 2 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 thin slices cucumber
  • 1.5 oz  vodka
  • 1 oz lemonade
  • .25 oz lime juice

In a shaker, muddle the basil and cucumber. Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice. Shake well and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a cucumber wheel.
